There was no reason to keep upping your antivirals like that actually. You had a pretty typical primary hsv1 genital outbreak. The first one can be quite a doozy :( throwing more and more antivirals at it really doesn't make much of a difference unfortunately.
You going to be seen again is the best idea. Make sure they properly test you for yeast an...
No need to wait 6 months, the 3 month time frame is fine that Vance recommended.
You didn't need antibiotics. You've had no symptoms of infection and personally I wouldn't take the antibiotic unless your test comes back positive. Needless antibiotic use is part of the reason why we are dealing with antibiotic resistant infections. The side ...
The mind is a powerful thing. You probably worried yourself so much that you now have pain. Therapy is a good idea since it will help you deal with many issues and I recommend you stop with all your std testing and doctor's visits!!
Drink plenty of fluids and keep yourself busy. There is nothing wrong with you that all these visits and testing wouldn...
Always protect yourself and only give and receive protected oral sex. Why worry when you can protect yourself 100%?
Does this sound like a std? No it does not. No real reason to bother with testing unless you just need the peace of mind. If you are in the US, your health department website will tell you where your local std clinic is located.
All 3 herpes antivirals work about the same way. Also it doesn't matter if it's generic or not. Not worth paying more money for the name brand at all.
Do you take birth control pills to control your periods? Why have monthly periods even if you don't have to?
Just irritation can be many things. At this point it's too late to get it cultured to confirm if it's hsv2 or not.
I'd personally switch over to acyclovir twice a day for suppressive therapy and see if you tolerate that better. You will probably still have some side effects for the first 2 weeks ( headache and nausea being the most frequent...
There is a decent false positive rate with herpes blood testing. If you can call your doctor and get the exact test results - ie hsv1 igg 4.4 and hsv2 igg 2.3 or whatever they are, we can better help you figure out if you need further confirmatory testing or not.
Have you talked to your ex bf yet so that he too can seek out testing to know his own status?...
You don't need to go for testing in 2 weeks. Even though you didn't have completely safe sexual contact, it was minimal contact and doesn't require any testing. In the future, protect yourself by remembering if your pants are off, a condom should be on. Why worry and test needlessly?
Have you had your hpv vaccine series yet? I highly recomm...
Are you sure you want to delete your ?
